In October, Jean-Michel Jarre released Electronica 1: The Time Machine, his 14th studio effort featuring special guests like M83 (“Glory”), Tangerine Dream (“Zero Gravity”), and horror legend John Carpenter (“A Question of Blood”). Now, just months later, the French electronic music pioneer is readying its follow-up.
Electronica 2: The Heart of Noise is slated to hit shelves on May 6th through Sony/RED. Much like its predecessor, the new album collects together a star-studded list of collaborators in Pet Shop Boys, Primal Scream, Gary Numan, Hans Zimmer, Cyndi Lauper, and Julia Holter, among others. Merrill Beth Nisker, better known as Peaches, also appears on the 18-track effort, joining Jarre on the woozy and warping “What You Want”, which can be heard below.
